The 17hmr shoots copper jacket bullets, so you'll get copper in the barrel, will it affect accuracy?? Some shoot 'em till they don't hit what they are aiming at, some clean after x rounds, or maybe after every shooting session. I'm in the latter group.

I clean it like a CF rifle, getting the copper out with copper removing solvent.
